California Faculty Ass'n v. PERB (Cal. Ct. App. - Feb.28, 2008)

Anyone who's ever been a member of a university faculty knows how pesky its members can be about parking. Where you park, how far from your office the parking spaces are, how much the parking permits cost, etc. You'd think that professors would have more important things on their mind. Especially since most of them -- including myself -- could use a little more walking (and other exercise) anyway. But you'd be wrong. Trust me when I say that parking is at the upper eschelon of what many faculty members care about.

That said, I've never seen a lawsuit about faculty parking at the University. Until today, that is.

Let's hear it for the victorious faculty at Cal State Northridge and Cal State Sacramento. Who sued when they weren't allowed to park in student spaces. Keep fighting the good fight.
